Adipex-P Side Effects

Dieters who take Adipex-P may experience side effects including depression, nervousness, problems sleeping, dry mouth, constipation, unpleasant taste, diarrhea or vomiting. Researchers studying the medication have reported that the most common side effects are dry mouth and insomnia.

The NIH also reports that some patients taking Adipex-P may experience more serious problems including increased blood pressure, heart palpitations, dizziness, tremors, shortness of breath, chest pain, swelling of the legs and ankles or difficulty doing exercises that you can usually do.
Prescribing information for the medication states that taking phentermine and phentermine-like products has been associated with primary pulmonary hypertension, a rare but often fatal disease of the lungs, so you should tell your health care provider if you have shortness of breath, chest or heart pain, or experience fainting or swelling in your lower legs. You should also contact your doctor immediately if you experience any decrease in the amount of exercise you are normally able to tolerate.
Lastly, there may be an association between phentermine and phentermine-like products and serious heart valve problems or disease.
